Albums critics/fans worship that you can't stand

As you can see from the title, the purpose of this thread is for you to select some albums that are hailed as legendary that you just do not like at all. I think pretty much everyone here has a decent enough knowledge of music to know that I'm referring to albums like Sgt. Peppers, Loveless, Nevermind, etc, and not albums that are given positive reviews or crappy albums made by great artists. Maybe we can get some of those who haven't "gotten" certain pieces of "art" to give them another chance.

Let's try and handle this maturely. At least, even if fighting and arguing break out, this will not turn into a U2 vs. Coldplay thread.

My three:

Piper At The Gates Of Dawn - Pink Floyd
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel
Pet Sounds - Beach Boys

Radiohead - Ok Computer

Probably not the wisest choice of album to make to on this forum but when i bought it i expected to so much and got so little back. I suppose the expectation was a huge burden to shoulder but i can't see how or why it justifies its tag of 'Best album of the 90's' which i've seen on a few 'Top 50' album lists and magazine covers.

It has some great songs like The Tourist, Lucky and Paranoid Android but a lot of it's appeal is lost on me

Wrong answer.

In all fairness, I do think that's the best album of the 90's, and I will stick by that forever. It shows everything that was good about prog rock being revisited by one of the most experimental bands of our time. Every song is a gem. If you don't like it, I just suggest you listen again.

Anything related to Nirvana, Arctic Monkeys, Nickelback, or that putrid Neutral Milk Hotel album.

Really guys.

Either of Joanna Newsom's albums.

She's awful. I hate hearing about how amazing she is and how Ys is one of the best albums in a long, long time. The arrangements can be pretty, I'll admit, but her voice is probably the worst one I've ever heard.

I have to agree with OK Computer. Karma Police is a thing of beauty, but I'm just not a fan.

Agreed also with Joanna Newsom. I heard a good chunk of it, and my response was: Are you KIDDING me?

I remember being severely disappointed with Jeff Buckley's Grace. It was decent, but nowhere near fulfilling my expectations.

Have you been to a high school recently?

I'll throw out OK Computer as well. Best album of the 90's? I don't think so. Not even in the top 3 Radiohead albums. It's completely overrated, though it's definitely still a great album. Give me Airbag, Let Down, No Surprises and Lucky. Everything else. I'd rather listen to anything from Radiohead's 3 (maybe even 4) better albums.

Let It Be.

I like the Beatles but this was a HORRIBLE album. It sounds so uninspired with most of the album feeling like filler. It's just terrible.
